Im overweight, how does that effect the results of a pregnancy test, LMP was in july negative home test, been regular for years... Thank you.. ?
No effect: Your weight should not effect the accuracy of a urine home pregnancy test which measures HCG which is produced by cells within the placental tissues of the conception. A blood test for serum beta HCG can give a more exact measurement of the pregnancy hormone level and can be followed over time to ensure an early pregnancy appears to be progressing properly until an ultrasound can be perfomed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If my period should start around now (and it hasn't) and I take a pregnancy test tomorrow morning, what is likelihood of the home test being accurate?
Wait another week: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
